Last minute hotel in Aqaba

I'll be in Jordan in late December, and after spending a couple days in Petra will go to Wadi Rum on the Saturday 29th...however if the weather isn't good in Wadi Rum I'd like to go to Aqaba instead. Would it be possible to get a last minute room in Aqaba on a Saturday night?

it is to soon to talk about the weather in Rum,,,, it is do-able,, the days are short,, but the camps in the Wadi are warm.

I do find late Jan, into early Feb to be colder than Dec... a camp fire in a Bedouin tent ;-)

go for it, you will love it........

I don't think you'll have a problem finding a hotel in Aqaba late December, although the week between Christmas and New Year is high season again here.

Thanks. Just out of curiosity, is December 25th Roman Catholic Christmas or the eastern Orthodox Christmas in early January the bigger one in Jordan?

both are celebrated in Jordan, the 25th is the bigger, as it is a national holiday,,, although banks and gov''t offices are closed on the 25th,,, for tourist sites, business is as usual....

We were in a similar situation in May but just booked via booking.com or similar site the day before.

Thanks all. Well, maybe I will look for a hotel in Aqaba with a 24 hour cancel policy so I can book now just in case, and cancel close to that day depending on weather patterns, and if I decide to camp in Wadi Rum instead of overnight in Aqaba.

But that leads me to the next question...can I find a last minute camp in Wadi Rum shoudl I decide to stay the night? I've looked into a couple camps, but they have a 7 day cancel policy which I'm not comfortable with right now not exactly knowing my itinerary.
